Here's how the Uber's stats are distributed to each team mate.
You will be able to recognize from team preview how your opponent is gifting their stats, based upon the position of their Uber.
Here's an example:
In this case, Lunala is my Uber Pokemon and is occupying slot 3. So, because Corviknight is in slot 1, it will have its HP stat replaced with Lunala's base HP of 137. Since Aegislash is in slot 2, it gets Lunala's Atk of 113. Lunala is in slot 3, so nothing receives its Def stat. Clefable in slot 4 gets Lunala's SpA of 137. Cloyster in slot 5 gets Lunala's 107 SpD, and lastly, Dracovish in slot 6 gets Lunala's 97 Spe. Where you place your 'God' Pokemon is extremely important in developing strong teams so do not take this important aspect lightly.
What happens when the God has a forme change?
The stats of the god prior to form change are what are used to gift to the other teammates. For example, Galarian Darmanitan-Z's teammates will receive the regular forme's stats and Aegislash's teammates will receive the Shield forme's stats. In addition, the Crowned formes of Zacian and Zamazenta will donate the Hero formes' stats.
What about the Gods themselves? Do they gain any stats?
No, they don't. Since they're "gifting" to themselves, their stats remain unchanged.
Won't Shedinja be broken?
Nope. Shedinja's HP is hardcoded to 1. Hazards are your friends.
What if a teammate has a forme change?
The stats will remain constant through out. For example, if Aegislash receives 100 Def then it will have 100 Def in both Shield and Blade forme.
When will X get banned?
There are certainly broken threats that may appear beyond our initial banlist thanks to the coming of a new generation, however, we don't want to ban anything outright before this has been played more. Topics on the banlist may be re-suspected but only if relevant arguments are brought up throughout discussion calling for such an action to occur. Things will be both VERY bulky and VERY strong in this meta, so you must prepare accordingly. When the time comes we can look at God bans and teammate bans, but again, please defer discussion about what needs to go until we can test it.
What if I don't have an Uber on my team?
The Pokemon in the first slot (HP slot) acts as the God Pokemon. Although this strategy isn't necessarily the most effective option, it can most certainly work to some extent thanks to Pokemon with incredibly high stats.
Is this playable anywhere?
Yes! This is playable on the main Pokemon Showdown server.
If you have other questions, PM Kris and I can update the FAQ.
If anyone has a suggestion on how to improve these or new ideas for other standards, please share.
